Wild Yak: THEY MUST BE SAVED!

The species Bos Mutus, or more known as the wild yak, has become endangered.

The yak is from 1.6 to 2.2 meters at the shoulder going up to 2,200 pounds. They live in the highlands, so they have a black fur coat with a grey muzzle to help keep them warm.They have horns, but they aren’t very harmful creatures, only if frightened or fighting-in the rare occasion.That coat does keep them warm with weather from -38 degrees in the winter to 86 degrees in the summer.

They are becoming more endangered nowadays. With the humans and other predators killing them for meat and fur coats. And they wouldn’t hurt a fly. Now, whats up with that?
